the National University of Ireland Maynooth. IMVIP 2007 is the main 
conference of the Irish Pattern Recognition and Classification Society 
(IPRCS), a member body of the International Association for Pattern 
Recognition (IAPR). The conference brings together theoreticians and 
practitioners, industrialists and academics, from the numerous related 
disciplines involved in the processing and analysis of image-based 

IMVIP 2007 is a single-track conference consisting of high quality 
previously unpublished contributed papers. The conference emphasises 
both theoretical research results and practical engineering experience 
in all areas. Full papers will be subject to a double-blind review
